Question Seats for narrow shouldered babies


New member
I think I'm going to have to give up my beloved BV70 :(. I love love love the seat but I'm having a hard time keeping the straps on Dd2s shoulders even when moving up the straps and removing the pads. I am completely out of the loop on seats lately so what is out there user $200 that will be good for narrow shoulder babies?

My siggy isn't right. Dd2 is 7mon and about 17lbs.

Evenflo Triumph or Symphony? They were my favorites for ds3 who is tiny. He didn't fit well in the TFP until he was 2 1/2 because the straps slipped off his shoulders. If you have a pukey kid the Evenflo seats are not great because the infinite slide harness is not replaceable. He also fit well in the CA.

She is sick and I don't want to take her out in the cold right now but her shoulders kind of slope down and while the inside part of the straps sit nicely on her shoulder the outside hangs off. The inside hits about middle shoulder on her. I will see if I have a recent pic that shows it.

Here is a pic from a few months ago. She has gotten taller but not any wider. The fit is the same without the covers on also. She is very narrow!

Looks like the BV straps are 3in apart so I need a seat that has straps closer than that.
